Evertime I try to upload a show, it takes 3-4 days for the damn thing to get moved

It's not a race, and 3 days is nothing compared to the decades that the show will be in here once the import has completed. There's nobody out there that can't wait 3 more days to hear a show.

Patience.

Well put.

In addition, the Grateful Dead shows are queued with the lowest priority, meaning that any show that comes in will go before it, so this has little to do with GD additions.

OK, if thats true, then how come when I check the "Where Am I In Line" page, it has my show AFTER the GD shows?

Besides, no one is ever going to download the GD shows that fast, so why do we need 100 added everyday? The shows I/we are putting up are about a week old, meaning there is a demand for it, the GD shows are 20-30 years old. I doubt anyone is in a huge hurry to get those.

I think if you really need your shows spread so quickly, you should BT them first. This is an archive, for long term storage and use, hence the www.archive.org. Your comment of "Show some respect for everyone else around here, ok." is very hypocritical. Show some respect for the people that are tyring very hard to please everyone and keeping this site running. Believe it or not, your show is no more important than any other on here, and if upload 2,000 GD shows a day is best for the archive, that's what should be done.

And in my opinion, the person who has waited 30 years for a Dead show should get it before the person who's been waiting 5 days for your show. They've been waiting much longer :)

The reason your shows appear after the GD in line is this:

When there are no other shows to process, it will process a Grateful Dead show. If you add your show while all the servers are processing GD shows, then your show has to wait (no longer than 2 hours) before it will get processed.

Let me know which show took too long (post the URL), and I'll verify the time between when you added it to the time it was approved by a curator.
